Bazel

Renovate supports upgrading dependencies in bazel WORKSPACE files.

How It Works

  1. Bazel support is enabled automatically, so you do not have to explicitly configure it to be enabled
  2. Renovate will search repositories for any WORKSPACE files in the repository
  3. Existing dependencies will be extracted from git_repository and http_archive declarations
  4. Renovate will replace any old versions with the latest version available

git_repository

Renovate will update any git_repository declaration that contains the following:

  1. name
  2. remote matching https://github.com/<owner>/<repo>.git
  3. tag using a valid semver

Example:

git_repository(
    name = "build_bazel_rules_typescript",
    remote = "https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_typescript.git",
    tag = "0.6.1",
)

New versions will be detected using the list of tags for that repository on GitHub.

http_archive

Renovate will update any http_archive declaration that contains the following:

  1. name
  2. url matching https://github.com/<owner>/<repo>/releases/download/<semver>/<repo>.tar.gz
  3. sha256

Example:

http_archive(
    name = "io_bazel_rules_go",
    url = "https://github.com/bazelbuild/rules_go/releases/download/0.7.1/rules_go-0.7.1.tar.gz",
    sha256 = "341d5eacef704415386974bc82a1783a8b7ffbff2ab6ba02375e1ca20d9b031c",
)

New versions will be detected using the list of releases for that repository on GitHub.
